My Letter to " Poggio Antico " - A Organic and Biodynamic Agriculture Farm in Toscana, Italy


Dear Alessandro,

This is Jocelyn Lin writing from Taiwan. I know your organic and biodynamic agriculture from television, Discovery Channel, last week which was presented by Miss Joan, a movie star from USA or UK.

I was deeply touched & so heartened by your love toward the land, the animal, the plants, and the way you cherish the nature environment. Every words you said were extremely encouraged me & from your father's eyes, I could see his endless tender & passions toward the commitment you made - avoiding the exploitation from the nature mother & maltreatment toward the animal.

I'd had a serious illness during 1999 to 2000, recovered for the past few years, and I would like to keep on living by the way you did.

This year, I'd like to go back to Italy on May. I'm wondering if it would be possible for you to offer me the occasion to work & learn in your farm. I may work in the field for planting, feeding the animals, work in the cheese factory, or packing the herbs with the ladies. I'd been a secretary in a Science Industrial Park for almost 10 years, but never work at any farm before. So I may be clumsy & unhandy, but I'll be humble & learn with respect from you & your family.


Sorry for bothering you & bringing you troubles if any.


Thank you very much in advance for your time & patience.

Wish you a good day.

Jocelyn Lin

Dear Jocelyn,

I just spoke to your husband Richard at the phone......as I told him, I will give you an answear as soon as possible.

Thank you for the beautiful words you spend for us....It was very kind of you. Nevertheless, I also hope you are aware that we are not perfect and we still fell on the way to improve our many limits. I take advantage to wish you and your husband happy Easter.

Alessandro

Dear Jocelyn,

We are looking forward to meeting you. The date of your arrival is fine.

You are supposed to have meals with my parents, and you will have got your own bedroom at the guests' house. The members of our family are very kind and joyfull. The only problem is that they do not speak english.....but there is other way to "talk", isn't it ?

Please confirm me the supposed date of your arrival. We can pick you up somewhere around here, just let us know where. I say you bye for now.


Kind regards

Alessandro

Here I am back in Italy... at " Poggio Antico ", Toscana.

在托斯卡尼鄉間醒來的第一個清晨,
我倚在窗前... 靜靜等候日出...
終於又回到義大利...






 

農場沐浴在一片晨光之中..很不真實的感覺..

*****************************************************************************

長途飛行之後有人迎接的感覺真好...
昨天抵達農場的那一刻.. 一切仍然像在做夢...
Alessandro微笑著對我說" It likes a miracle..for having you here...^_^ "
是啊... 這世界真是神奇啊 ~
只因為在Discovery電視上看到農場的報導深受感動,竟然就來到這裡 ~~~
接下來會發生什麼樣的事呢?...充滿期待地...


 

這是農場大門...踏出這大門,會是一星期以後的事了...

 

 

我的房間就在這兒二樓!

 

這是農場經營的有機商店與自家農產品! 農場也直接配送產品到客戶手中

 

我的最愛 - 自產自製的有機初榨橄欖油,味道果然跟一般橄欖油截然不同!
深綠色,微微辛辣的口感,味道香甜得令人迷醉.. 沾麵包就好吃極了!

 

自產自製的雜糧麵條,口感比一般白麵條好吃千百倍!
對白米,白麵條,白麵包沒什麼興趣的我和小孩來說,這裡像是天堂 ~

 

每次春天來到義大利,剛好都是Zucchini盛產的季節!!
Zucchini是夏南瓜的其中一個品種,水煮或稍微用橄欖油煎過,就好吃極了!

 

用新鮮的Carciofi朝鮮薊拌義大利麵,是絕妙好滋味 ~

 

從鄉間道路回望農場..

 

工作之餘,在山巒起伏的托斯卡尼鄉間散步,
每一個步伐...每一個呼吸...都是最深沉的幸福...







~ the end ~

    <br />
    我們的生活總是太忙,忙的忘記還有這麼些美麗的地方以及純樸自然的生<br />
    活感動。<br />
    感謝你帶領我們看到這些,並且非常高興接到你的通知,也彷彿跟著你去看到了<br />
    托斯卡尼<br />
    的清晨,聞到了清新的空氣,似乎連夢中都會出現有隨意伸展枝葉的小花、小<br />
    草。<br />
    <br />
    替我們捧一些新鮮空氣吧!如果有那種小叮噹才有的任意門,請借一個給我<br />
    們。<br />
